At Integrative Medical Group our experienced chiropractor offers comprehensive treatments for your back, neck and shoulder pain. For more information please call us or request an appointment online.

When you experience chronic or acute neck, back, or shoulder pain, your first inclination may be to take pain-relievers and become as immobile as possible until your pain subsides. However, this approach typically doesn’t come with the long-term benefits of living a more pain-free, active life.
Alternatively, chiropractic care can relieve your musculoskeletal pain and provide a lasting solution to conditions that limit your mobility and reduce your activity level. Take a few minutes to learn how a chiropractor treats back, neck, and shoulder pain so you can return to your daily and leisure activities and avoid dependency on medications.
At Integrative Medical Group of Texas in Austin, Texas, we take a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to treating your spine and joint pain. We customize a treatment plan for you that often includes gentle chiropractic adjustments to reduce inflammation, restore joint function, and help you get back to your busy lifestyle without surgery or downtime. Rather than prescribing medications that simply dull your pain temporarily, we seek to find the root cause of your pain so we can resolve it and prevent it from recurring.
Chiropractic care for back pain
Back pain is a general term for everything from mild discomfort to debilitating pain that prevents you from participating in leisure activities or makes it difficult to sit, stand, or sleep comfortably. Before beginning chiropractic care for your back pain, our experienced chiropractors determine the cause of your pain.
For example, lower back pain may be a sign of sciatica — a painful set of symptoms that occur as a result of nerve pressure from a bulging or herniated disc in your spine, a bone spur, or spinal stenosis (the narrowing of your spinal column). Once we understand the cause of your back pain, we prescribe a series of gentle, noninvasive spinal manipulations.
Manual therapies are often highly effective at relieving back pain, reducing stiffness, and improving mobility. As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, we may pair your chiropractic adjustments with physical therapy, massage, and spinal decompression therapy. During spinal decompression therapy, you lie comfortably on a motorized table that gently stretches your spine to help alleviate pressure and pain.
Chiropractic care for neck pain
You neck is part of your spine and can benefit from chiropractic adjustments, too, especially after a common injury such as whiplash. But you don’t have to have an injury to experience neck pain. Conditions like osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease can cause neck pain and are common problems that occur with the natural aging process.
Your chiropractor at Integrative Medical Group of Texas is trained to perform neck adjustments, or cervical manipulation — precise movements that help alleviate sore, stiff neck and upper back muscles, and improve your mobility. Research indicates that you can benefit from chiropractic adjustments for chronic neck pain.
Chiropractic care for shoulder pain
Your shoulder is a complex joint made up of bones, ligaments, and muscles that allow a full range of motion, including rotation. When your shoulder joint shifts out of alignment as a result of an injury or from repetitive motion tasks, such as hammering or painting overhead, you can experience muscle spasms, inflammation, and extreme discomfort. Left untreated, shoulder pain can progress into a chronic condition that affects your neck and upper back, as well, and can make it difficult to perform everyday tasks, like getting dressed.
Gentle chiropractic adjustments and manual manipulation of your shoulder help put your shoulder joint back into alignment and reduce inflammation and discomfort so you can move more easily. Exercises, physical therapy, and postural adjustments may also help alleviate shoulder pain. Adjustments to your upper back and neck can help correct shoulder problems, too.
Chiropractic adjustments for your back, neck, and shoulders as part of an integrative treatment plan can help you regain full range of motion to live without chronic pain or recover from an injury. If you’d like to avoid invasive procedures and feel better faster than you thought possible, make chiropractic care part of your rehabilitation program.
